How's it Going? Using SGID for Open Ended Student Feedback

Time: 4/21/2009 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Viking Union 462A

Join Judith Frey, Director, Instructional Improvement, Renton Technical College, for this inspirational, informative session.

The Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID) is an open-ended feedback process to provide anonymous formative feedback to instructors while a course is still in session. Students are asked to identify issues that are most important for their learning in a course. Similar to a focus group, a facilitator meets with the students, in the instructor's absence, to identify course strengths and areas for change. The facilitator summarizes this information and meets with the instructor to discuss the students' perceptions and options for addressing their concerns. Instructors find what they learn through this process very useful for helping them make decisions about their teaching. In this session, Judith will introduce the process, elaborate the methods, and share her experiences.
